Sustainable Solutions Designer Scott Bolden: A Platform For Resonant Connection

Scott Bolden is an interdisciplinary visionary, part artist, designer, engineer, musician and event producer. He is the co-founder of Das Baumhaus Berlin, an event and collaborative project space for people who want to act on their sense of initiative to make the world a better place personally, ecologically, aesthetically, culturally, economically and socially (P.E.A.C.E.S.).

About Das Baumhaus Berlin: At Baumhaus, we aim to create a space where we as neighbors can address the transition to sustainability from a broad spectrum of perspectives. Transitioning from a culture of domination and exploitation to a culture of care, maintaining a dynamic balance in relations to oneself, others, and nature – that’s the project of our (life)time. And while it’s about development in the social and economic world, it’s also about personal development. We think, working for change is bit like practicing an art: it’s about what we do in our every day life, and it works better if we have fun and a supportive community. Baumhaus is a platform for all those P.E.A.C.E.S. of being a good neighbor and actor of change – bringing together perspectives that are: Personal Who am I, where am I at in my life, where do I want to be and how do I get there? How can we take care of ourselves so that we can live more balanced and satisfying lives? Ecologic How can we live in balance with the ecosystem and protect life on this planet? Aesthetic How can we understand and be in touch with the many ways it’s possible to sense the world? Cultural How can we appreciate and learn from our differences but also focus on what we have in common? Economic How can we advance towards more balanced, zero waste and humane ways of production and consumption? SocialHow can we communicate with each other, to understand and work collaboratively to support each other?

Benedikt Maschke

Self-study of life, people and cultures. Exploring, learning, teaching, connecting and sharing in various fields, e.g. communities, premium-collective, services in health, sustainability, organic food, farming and gastronomy, product development and distribution, general consulting, musicians and artists, organization of coops and events, travel and hosting, IT and online projects i.a.

About Premium-Kollektiv / also known as Premium-Cola: Premium started in 2000 with creating an open-source economy model, the PremiumOS (= Betriebssystem) based on the equality of people, honesty, fairness, sustainability and transparency. It operates as a collective: farmers, manufacturers, distributors, sellers and especially consumers become integrated and take part in making altogether decisions in consensus. The collective works without a boss while cooperating with over 1700 partners and none written contracts. This open-source operating system is used to produce and distribute drinks e.g. premium-cola and premium-bier (= hardware). It proves that this balanced business model is functioning. Goal is to bring a more sustainable work environment into our world by sharing the knowledge through online documentation, talks and consultations.

Leona Lynen: Agora Rollberg – Berlin's First Circular Economy Hub

Leona is Circular Economy Program Manager at Agora Rollberg, a prototype for better ways of working and living together around circular economy principles. At Agora Rollberg, Leona aims at building bridges between content, ideas and stakeholders, ranging from hands-on applicable CE solutions for the local neighborhood to radically shifting mindsets of global players. Previously, she worked as freelance Curator and Project Manager for various Goethe-Instituts around the world, focusing on bottom-up city making and co-creative urban development.

About Agora Rollberg: The Agora Rollberg is a Berlin based center for circular economy practices. Established in 2016 as Berlin's first circular economy hub, we invite like-minded individuals and institutions to meet, exchange ideas and collaborate around circular economy projects. We believe that a different way of living and working together is both necessary and possible.

Organization website: http://www.agorarollberg.org

About the talk: At Agora Rollberg, we believe that a different way of living and working together is both necessary and possible. We also believe that circular economy principles are central to designing such a system. At its essence, a circular economy represents a new way of looking at the relationships between markets, customers and natural resources, and thus eliminating the very concept of ‘waste’ and recognizing everything has a value. In my talk I will give a short introduction to Circular Economy, how it relates to the Sharing Economy and how we'll incorporate both in the future of our Agora Rollberg House.


There will be a quickpitch session after the main presentations which gives you the opportunity to present your project/organisation/company/idea in 1 minute.
